Feel fashionably festive with our Christmas Party-themed Fashion InDurham!

With the nights drawing in and a nip in the air, the festive season will soon be upon Durham City, bring it with party-goers and family and friends, celebrating Christmastime across the county. Now, we’re helping you to sort your wardrobe woes and to be fabulously fashionable in time for the festive season, with a specially themed ‘Christmas Party’ Fashion InDurham.

 

That’s right… it’s time to get your glad rags on because Christmas comes but once a year and the festive season is almost upon us!

 

Taking place in The Riverwalk on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th October, you’ll be able to drop into the specially designed event space between 11am and 3.30pm each day, where you’ll be able to the browse the rails of participating businesses in Durham City, showcasing all the latest fashion, jewellery and homeware trends for the winter season.

 

After all, Christmas certainly is one of the most wonderful times of the year, and where better to celebrate the festive season than in Durham? With brilliant bars and party venues, to eateries for couples to enjoy a quiet meal for two, to the ODEON Luxe and the panto at the Gala Theatre for families looking for festive days out. 

 

However you’re planning on celebrating Christmas this year, our Christmas Party Fashion InDurham has everything you need – from show-stopping outfits that will wow at the work do, to cosy jumpers and knitwear for snuggling up while watching the latest Christmas release at the cinema. It’s a must for anyone who is wanting to update their look in time for Santa’s arrival!

 

Participating businesses in the specially designed Christmas Party iteration of Fashion InDurham include Next, Fatface & M&Co. Also on-hand during the event will be Yasmin Bowron – an expert stylist – offering advice and guidance if you are looking to re-vamp your wardrobe and find a special outfit to celebrate in style this festive season. With vast experience as an event stylist too, Yasmin will also be offering advice if you are looking to add a touch of festive flair to your homes this year, ready for hosting all your different Christmas parties and family-get-togethers over the coming months.

 

One important thing to note is that unlike previous Fashion InDurham events, no appointments are necessary. In fact, all style advice is on a drop-in first come, first served basis, so you might want to arrive as early as possible to beat the crowds! Yasmin will be on-hand throughout the course of the two days to chat to you and help guide you through the rails of Durham City’s fashion and homeware retailers’ newest collections for winter 2019 – you’re very much in safe hands and will have a wonderful experience!

 

In addition to Fashion InDurham, Woven – a national award-winning gentlemen’s outfitters – based on Elvet Bridge, will be hosting a special Gents Evening on Thursday 3rd October in-store between 6pm and 9pm. Everyone is welcome to attend the evening and enjoy what there is to offer. Plus, with it happening the day before Fashion InDurham too, it's a great way to set the tone across the City for the weekend.

 

Of course, while Fashion InDurham happens across the City every month in one shape or form, this edition of the event is extra special. We’re bringing some of the City’s best retailers together into one space just for you! From big-name high street brands like Monsoon to independent businesses like Mugwump and Andersons of Durham, there’s something to suit all tastes and all budgets to help you look and feel fabulous this festive season.
